carefree & full of whimsy

I love this image, from German Vogue, of a Louis Vuitton look -- bunny ears included. I love seeing such a sort of ridiculous accessory put into a youthful, fun, and ultimately actually wearable look.

It's always too soon, to me, to start printing fall ads and fashion, but this latest Longchamp ad with Kate Moss is my favorite by far. The intensity of the colors and contrasts when it's on a two-page spread made me stop long enough to notice that Longchamp does ready-to-wear, something I'll admit I had no idea of before. And the clothes are gorgeous at that. So I guess that could be considered a successful ad!

love for loewe

images from and

What really says "modern" to me right now are new interpretations of a classic androgynous outfit: a blouse and pants. Recently I've seen a lot of these looks by Loewe, 
which is not often a designer you hear from celebrities in response to "who are you wearing" -- but maybe all that will change. Sienna Miller wore a gorgeous sheer blouse with contrast piping at the seams in London for her new movie GI Joe, and Victoria Beckham had great loose white pants with a v-shaped high waist. They are looks that could step from a yacht to the city street, to cocktails or even to the office. Versatility and sophistication all in one.

If you don't know this personal style blog yet, you must: My Daily Style. I so love this outfit -- it has those vintage details that I never seem to be able to find. Love the mix of the neutral blouse and brightly patterned skirt. 

Meanwhile... I'm off at the beach this week!

prada resort

More than anything, resort collections are all about color. Some of the best I've seen this season are these mixed prints at Prada -- they almost have the illusion of being patterned scarves draped together. And personally I love turquoise and gold mixed together.

oh, gucci

Did I need another reason to love you? And your menswear, no less?

lara stone & morgan freeman in vogue

An unlikely pair, but gorgeous photographs in Vogue (US) several months ago. Lara Stone has so many completely different outfits in this editorial, but she makes them all work, effortlessly. I especially love the D&G tweed skirt-suit, below, and the canary yellow sundress with motorcycle boots. 
This must have been a sincerely fun one to shoot.

polo match

Several weeks ago, Veuve Clicquot hosted the Polo Classic on Governor's Island in NY... the match featuring Prince Harry and Nacho Figueras. And of course a lot of excellent polo match fashion -- light draped dresses in neutral shades and big flouncy hats. Irresistible looks for beating the summer heat. 
Standing out among the crowd -- Chloe Sevigny in what has become her staple Chloe scallop-hemmed short suit, Alek Wek looking amazing as always even with a broken wrist, Kate Hudson with new brunette hair, and model Hilary Rhoda in classic Grecian white.

Of the recent pictures of the upcoming season of Gossip Girl, I really loved this striped dress on Blair the best. Then, just by chance, I found the source. It's from Henri Bendel's (one of the show's favorite NY stores) Cooperative Designs, re-interpreting their classic knitwear in limited edition. You can find it here for only $164.

Two favorite looks from the couture shows

Left, Christian Lacroix (photo from; Right, Givenchy (photo from

Two opposites, really. I love the somberness, the simplicity, and yet the elegance of the black Lacroix - especially appropriate at this time. The mix of textures, and the silk turban, really work together amazingly. And the white Givenchy, is light and strong at the same time. I love the subtle white-on-white houndstooth, and the jewelry and accessories, which remind me of both the Statue of Liberty and The Little Mermaid.... yet are altogether modern.

something blue

These two blue tops really caught my eye on's people and parties section recently. Never thought I would be one to like a sequin tshirt, but with the dark color it's just subtle enough I think.
